"Don't worry, it's just a little inconvenient ... for your staffer."
Republican Asa Hutchinson, the former congressman and current candidate for governor of Arkansas, is a big fan of the state's new voter I.D. law. So what happened when Mr. Hutchinson tried to vote on Tuesday?
Spokesman Christian Olson told The Associated Press that Asa Hutchinson forgot his ID when he attempted to vote at the polls in Bentonville on Tuesday. Olson says a staffer was able to retrieve the ID and bring it to Hutchinson so he could vote. [...]

Olson says Hutchinson thought the incident was a “little bit of an inconvenience” but still believes the law is necessary.

Good point, Asa!

And so, to the elderly or infirm voter who had to arrange for transportation to the polls, to the single mom who managed to find a babysitter for an hour, to the minimum wage worker who ran over to vote during lunch, remember, forgetting your I.D. isn't the end of the world, it's only a "little bit of an inconvenience." Just have your staffer run home and get it for you. Problem solved!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
